Description for Ford Bronco 1978

This 1978 Ford Bronco has a mean all-black look and the enhanced V8 power to back it all up. So this is the full-size classic 4x4 you've bene waiting for.
The second-generation Bronco is where Ford really turned it up a notch. Larger styling, larger engines, and just an overall larger presence. So when it debuted for 1978, it was an instant legend. This bolder Bronco idea was really taken to heart on this example. It has a rugged all-black look that you not only see on the recently resprayed paint, but also main areas like the wheels and removable hardtop. Plus, against the black is a well-done brightwork package where you can see they made some recent investments in places like the bumpers and grille surround to keep it shining particularly well. And the complete side trim even has a black rub strip for both protection and to really bring the whole package together. While this SUV looks absolutely appealing, you also can recognize the practicality that comes from a 4x4 with a tall stance, swing-away mount for a full-size spare, trailering mirrors, and a proper trailer hitch.
The appeal of black continues on the inside. The door panels, carpeting, and details all present well. In fact, there are newer seat covers and a dash pad to really have this feeling nice. As a full-size vehicle, there's plenty of room for family, friends, and all their gear. There are even nice upgrades, like a Grant sports steering wheel, cup holders, and an AM/FM digital tuner with USB input for your phone. But your favorite features are the ones that came stock on this Bronco. The power rear window means you get a tailgate that you can sit on everywhere from ball games to the campsite. And the removable rear hardtop means you can have a convertible-like feeling whenever you want.
While the previous generation Bronco stopped at Ford's 302 V8, the second-gen means proper 351 V8 power. The consignor states this motor has been rebuilt, and the bold blue presentation with shining valve covers reaffirms an investment here. Plus, it was upgraded for power with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Holley intake, and long tube headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. A two-speed 4x4 transfer case, beefy axles, and Cooper Discoverer SST tires mean this powerful classic can still take you deep into the wilderness. But it also has features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering (with a new pump), and front disc brakes make it a fine choice for in-town, too.
The second-generation Bronco was only available for a couple of years. So when you can find an example that's has a dark horse look and a powerful package, then you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
